Neither girlfriend knew the other was planning to propose on the same day
Be prepared to Feel Things when you watch this video of an adorable couple surprising each other with proposals at the exact same time. Because sometimes we can have nice things.
Becky McCabe and Jessa Gillaspie were recently visiting the Memphis Zoo — the place where their love story began during their first date. The two posed for a quick photo at the zoo’s entrance before McCabe dropped to one knee and proposed to her girlfriend. Rather than immediately give McCabe a “yes,” you can see Gillaspie stand there, seemingly in shock, and pause for a moment before reaching into her purse.
Because, it turns out, she was planning a surprise of her own too. Warning: watching this video may cause your heart to grow three sizes.
Unbeknowst to McCabe, Gillaspie was planning on proposing to McCable on the same day, at the same location.
Gillaspie initially shared the couple’s engagement news on her Facebook page, where she says neither one of them knew what the other was planning. “We were both so surprised! We were surrounded by our friends and had the most amazing night. I am the luckiest girl in the world to be able to call her my fiancé.” She even used the most perfect engagement hashtag ever: #TheMcBabes.
The video of the proposal quickly went viral, because sometimes we all just need to revel in some happy news for a change. In an update to the original Facebook post, Gillaspie says neither of the #McBabes expected the clip to blow up so quickly. “I can’t say I’m not thrilled,” Gillaspie says. “Because all I’ve ever wanted was for Beck and the world to know how much l love her.”
They plan to marry sometime next year.
